The Origin of Liverpool Players since 1992-93

I've been fighting with this off and on (mostly off) for a few months now. It's not getting any different. So, I present to you, the place of birth of all 198 players who've featured for Liverpool since the beginning of the Premier League (the 1992-93 season).

Click on the images to open full-size in a new window.

The full list of players and countries can be found in this Google Doc spreadsheet.


1) This list includes players who played in any competition, not just the Premier League. There have been 20 players to feature for Liverpool in the FA Cup, League Cup, Europa League, or Champions League, but not play in a Premiership match. They are highlighted in blue in the Google Doc linked above.

2) Players are categorized by place of birth, not the country they represent(ed) in international competition. This includes 12 players: Rob Jones, John Barnes, Bruce Grobbelaar, Phil Babb, Jason McAteer, Abel Xavier, Momo Sissoko, Mark Gonzalez, Nabil El Zhar, Raheem Sterling, Nuri Sahin, and Brad Smith. They are highlighted in red in the Google Doc linked above.

As usual, all data (read: place of birth, international team represented) from the invaluable LFCHistory.net

Great work as always.
Incidentally, you might have missed Glen Hysen from Sweden - sorry.

I didn't forget Glenn. Hysen played from 1989-90 – 1991-92. The list of players for this map started in 1992-93, because no matter how arbitrary, it's a handy dividing line.

Yes, you're right Nate. My bad.
